In brief: Sprain/Strain

There are many potential causes of low back pain after a fall.
The most common are sprain/strain injuries. Usually acute back or hip pain will improve over 1-2 weeks with anti-inflammatories, gentle streching, and use of heat/ice. If your pain does not improve or gets worse you should contact your physician.

In brief: Varies

Many potential causes from mild soft tissue injuries to serious injuries like a fracture.
I would not hesitate to be seen to evaluate the full nature of the injury.
